19-Jul-1999 -- This confluence is
just off of Interstate 5, near the California Aqueduct (Photo #4).
Our first attempt was to follow the aqueduct to get as
close as we could and then walk. Until we hit this locked gate, still 4
miles away. It looked like the spot was on those hills ahead and to the
left, so we tried to get on the road that crosses the aqueduct just on the
other side of this gate.
We found the road, but it looks like a flash flood had found it
first (Photo #5).
Eventually we found a way to get on the other side of the gorge,
and the road took us within 100 feet of the confluence. (Photo #3) It was easy to get
to, but it took about 2 hours to get the wheat kernels out of our shoes and
Maria marks the spot. (Photo #2)
